    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Consider this the first of a bunch of award Damian Lillard could be racking up. The Portland Trailblazers celebrated rookie won the All-Star Saturday Taco Bells Skills Competition. He seemed to embody the old John Wooden mantra of “be quick, don’t hurry.” “I think the biggest thing for me is to try to be too…

  3. Report: Philadelphia testing market for Evan Turner

    Feb 9, 2013, 12:31 PM EST

    Evan Turner

    The idea was to pair Evan Turner on the wing with Jrue Holiday at the point, then put Andrew Bynum in the paint and suddenly you have the beginnings of a pretty good team in the East. And maybe that still works out, we have yet to see Andrew Bynum on the court and how…

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Let’s get this out of the way first — this is not a setback. I know people can get skittish when you talk Andrew Bynum and knees, but things are still on track. This was planned, it was the next step in the process and the timeline for Bynum to finally make his debut with…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: For one night at least Celtics look fine post-Rondo

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs back in the saddle again

    Jan 28, 2013, 4:29 PM EST

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

  9. So who gets Rajon Rondo’s All-Star slot?

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:29 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    Don’t we all just love it when David Stern and the league office get to put their fingerprints all over the All-Star Game? But with Rajon Rondo now out with a torn ACL in his right knee, it falls to Stern to make changes to the East roster for the Feb. 17 game in Houston.…

    Jan 27, 2013, 12:04 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Holiday shoots past the defense of the New York Knicks Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Jrue Holiday was one of five Eastern Conference players named as an All-Star reserve on Thursday who will be making their first career appearance in the NBA’s midseason exhibition. Someone should have told him he already earned the honor. Holiday exploded for a career-high 35 points, to go along with five rebounds and six assists…

  11. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EST

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

    Jan 22, 2013, 1:53 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets' Johnson shoots three-point shot over New York Knicks' Smith and Kidd in NBA game in New York

    Some guys put up big numbers on Monday — Philly’s Evan Turner (18 points, 12 boards, 7 assists), Carmelo Anthony (29 points), Nene (24 points, 9 rebounds), DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 13 rebounds) — and maybe none better than Nicolas Batum’s triple-double (12 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds). But none of them make the cut.…

  15. Brandon Jennings doesn’t like his All-Star chances

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    PHOENIX — Brandon Jennings, and to a lesser extent, Monta Ellis, are on the bubble in terms of potential players who could be named to the All-Star team as a reserve. We discussed this on the podcast this week — once you get past Kyrie Irving, there really aren’t any locks to make the team…

  16. Jrue Holiday with the layup to send Sixers to overtime against Raptors (VIDEO)

    Jan 19, 2013, 12:02 AM EST

    Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday is doing his best to remind coaches that he deserves a spot on the Eastern Conference All-Star team this season. Holiday finished with a career-high tying 33 points, to go along with 14 assists while scoring all 12 of his team’s overtime points to lead the Sixers to a 108-101 win over the…

  17. These guys should be the NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 17, 2013, 8:30 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook drives by San Antonio Spurs' Parker during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    The fans have done their job — you all picked the NBA All-Star Game starters. And well done. While I could quibble with a choice I might have made differently, there are no egregious errors (read: Jeremy Lin is not a starter). Now it falls to the coaches to pick the seven reserves for each…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  19. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  20. Don’t look for Sixers to make moves at trade deadline

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:53 PM EST

    Injured Philadelphia 76er Bynum walks past a teammate before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia general manager Tony DiLeo doesn’t know really what cards he’s been dealt. Last summer he made a bold move — he shipped out Andre Iguodala and rebuilt the team around Andrew Bynum. There are not many athletic, true centers in the league and Philly landed itself one. Bynum averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds…

  21. James Harden goes behind the back and through the legs before getting the bucket against the Sixers (VIDEO)

    Jan 13, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    The Rockets couldn’t beat the Sixers in Philadelphia on Saturday, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying on the part of James Harden. Harden finished with 29 points on 10-19 shooting, to go along with nine rebounds and six assists. But none of his baskets were as pretty as this one that he converted…

  23. Report: Sixers explored trade for Thunder’s Eric Maynor

    Jan 8, 2013, 8:59 AM EST

    Eric Maynor

    The one position you would think the Philadelphia 76ers are set is point guard — Jrue Holiday has taken a huge step forward and is a borderline All-Star this season. But Philly apparently was looking for some depth there, tweets John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer. According to a source with the knowledge of the…

  24. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, but it’s close

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:22 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    To be honest, you could have ranked the top three in this week’s PBT NBA Power Rankings and been fine. I’m giving the top spot to the Thunder this week because I think they’d beat the Clippers or Spurs in a seven game series right now. But not easily. 1. Thunder (26-7, Last week ranked…

  25. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…
